PREFACE 



This biographical dictionary is a state-wide compilation. 

As such it would be but typical of many of its kind, had not marked compilative distinc' 
tiveness been brought to it by an augmentation, accomplished through integration of selected 
biographees, sufficient to provide an encompassment of areas contiguous to the designated 
state, or otherwise appropriate under contemporary and accepted concepts of American 
regionalism. 

Therefore, while it remains a state-wide compilation, the consultant will not find it entirely 
restricted to such drastic limitations as one locality's arbitrary boundary must inevitably impose. 
In short, to the user it takes on the added effectiveness of exceptional scope, while to its 
biographees it completely retains identification with the specific state. 

This distinctive betterment, which has been accomplished without placing any addi- 
tional charge upon subscribers, is responsive to the all but obvious reasons involving ref- 
erence usefulness, and as well to the gratifying interest evidenced in the compilation 
throughout the course of its preparation. This interest has in many instances reflected 
definite indications that enquiries reaching our community libraries and specialized ref- 
erence centers today consistently call for biographical data about a larger proportion of 
the outstanding men and women outstanding regionally, if not also nationally, in their 
localities than could be included in a work national in scope yet useable in size. 

This concern of consultants of biographical compilations with localized and regional 
coverage is, as a matter of fact, entirely logical. The national work necessarily limits itself 
to individuals happening to be of actual or probable reference interest throughout the 
country. There are, however, within a nation as extended geographically, and as developed 
in all the phases of modern life, as ours, actually the equivalents of at least five important 
"countries" — indeed, some capable authorities would consider six, seven, or even eight, 
the more accurate denominator for making such a subdivision. However, none would 
dispute that the areas encompassed herein lie in these great "lands 11 within a greater 
nation. 

It follows that within each of these great subdivisions there are men and women so 
outstanding in respect to the life and times of these countries-within-a-nation as to be 
subject to a degree of reference enquiry more marked than the corresponding nation-wide 
interest of but a few short decades ago, when appropriate allowance is made for the tre- 
mendous growth of America. "The Northwest", "The Pacific Coast", "The South and 
the Southwest", "The Central States", and "The East" are each today the equivalent 
of the entire country when the standard national biographical directory first appeared — 
not alone in point of biographical reference interest, but in many other respects as well. 



Thus there arises the clearly defined reference need for, and the useful reference field 
of, the logically delimited regional biographical work. The need for, and field of, the 
standard national reference work is not in the slightest measure lessened thereby. In rec- 
ognition of this obvious fact, some among those primarily of national interest, although 
resident in the areas covered by this work, have not been listed, as data regarding them 
are available in the standard national work to be found in all libraries and reference 
centers. 

It is worth also noting that the marked advantages inherent in the augmentation of 
scope mentioned above, have been obtained without reducing the facility with which the 
consultant can use the amplified compilation. This has been accomplished by means of a 
variation from what is still the arrangement usually applied to biographical dictionaries, 
and one selected as peculiarly fitted to the requirements of this compilation. 

It has become habitual to arrange biographical compilations alphabetically — in other 
words, to make them "self indexing". This is undoubtedly accounted for by the fact that 
the early compilations consisted of a very limited number of biographies, or were merely 
lists of names not accompanied by biographies. 

The "self indexing 11 arrangement, while convenient for such compilations, is actually 
cumbersome when applied to a grouping of any size and consisting of biographies. The 
biographies, even when laboriously condensed, are of sufficient length to result in so few 
names coming "under the eye" when a search is being made for a particular biographee's 
name — which is practically without exception the objective when such a compilation is 
put to use — that this quest consumes considerable unnecessary time. Page after page must 
often be turned before the desired name is located. 

Furthermore, the close alphabetization necessary in a self-indexing arrangement that 
is completely effective is exceedingly difficult to achieve in practice. Any name that is not 
exactly in sequence under the more or less arbitrary usages which the compilers elect to 
follow, is probably entirely "lost" to some consulting the compilation, for so few names 
are "under the eye" simultaneously that a name not found at once is not readily noticed 
elsewhere. Even a name correctly placed under the compilers 1 preferences in arrangment 
— for example, is "St." for "Saint", treated as "Sa" or "St."? — may be quite lost to the 
hurried consultant of the compilation. 

If, however, the biographees 1 names alone are separately arranged alphabetically — a^ 
a distinct index, in other words — a greatly increased number of names come "under the 
eye" simultaneously, and the quest for the desired name is markedly shortened, while the 
unfamiharly placed name will very probably be seen as a result of "being under the eye" 
at the critical moment. 

Then the particular page containing the desired biography can be turned to directly — 
since it will be specified directly opposite the name sought — without a number of pages 
having to be searched through until the correct one is finally found, "Dictionary style" 
repetitions — ■ in the top corners of pages — of the first and last names appearing on a 
page, may improve the "self-indexing" arrangement, but comparatively few consultants 
of biographical compilations utilize them, it has been found, and the fact that there are 
normally only a limited number of biographies on a page make them far less useful than 
in the case of a word dictionary. 

Therefore on both the above scores a separate alphabetical index of biographees 1 names 
facilitates. Additionally, it makes possible overcoming one of the principal compilative 
problems encountered under the "self-indexing" arrangement — the addendum required 



to care for biographies accumulating after the "self-indexing" compilation has been as' 
sembled. All the biographies to be compiled cannot be in hand at the moment the com' 
pilation is put into a "self-indexing" sequence — unless of course the compilation is to be 
non-current at publication — for many time-making production steps necessarily follow 
before the completed work can be distributed in book form. 

An addendum is therefore resorted to, and biographies coming to hand following the 
completion of the "self-indexing" arrangement of the compilation are relegated to it. 
But — and here is the difficulty — the addendum is usually entirely overlooked by those 
consulting the completed book. As a result biographees listed in the addendum are fre- 
quently to all intents and purposes practically not in the compilation at all — and to that 
important extent the compilation becomes ineffective. 

With all these factors in mind, this compilation carries a separate index of biographees' 
names alone, with the pages involved indicated in each instance. This procedure has made 
possible including in the basic compilation all biographies in hand up to the time of actually 
going to press, since under it there is no necessity to arrange the biographies in alphabetical 
sequence. An addendum was not required, furthermore — and as well the other important 
advantages mentioned above have been gained. It is the confident expectation of the edi- 
tors that this constructive change from what has been the habitual practice will be found 
most satisfactory in actual use, and as well that it will increase the serviceability of the 
compilation markedly. 

For the building of this new volume every proper source of available names has been 
drawn upon, and every reasonable effort has been made to procure the requisite data from 
persons deemed eligible for inclusion in keeping with the discriminating standard fixed 
for admission. Nevertheless, names which should have been included are missing; but in 
a\most every instance the omission is not due to inadvertence or lack of effort on the part 
of those responsible for the preparation of material for the book. 

As a rule, such omissions are the result of failure on the part of the persons invited 
to provide the necessary facts. However, the great majority of such invitations were 
promptly accepted, and other helpful cooperative courtesies were freely extended. For 
these grateful thanks are hereby extended. 

Notwithstanding the impediments and handicaps encountered during its production, 
many of them accentuated by war-brought difficulties which could not be escaped, this 
volume may lay just claim to providing a useful record of outstanding living men and 
women of an exceedingly important section of the country — a section whose economic, 
civic, social and other interests, if not identical, are nevertheless closely related. 

To make dependable a compilation such as this it is necessary that it should be im- 
partial, and inclusion in it unpurchasable. Space in this book has in no instance been pur- 
chased — with either a monetary remuneration or any other consideration of whatsoever 
nature — and every effort has been made to realize impartiality. 

For obvious reasons, the publishers here, in as prominent a manner as they have at their 
disposal, publicize that the title of this volume — used, as its typographical arrangement 
indicates, to specify sectional geographic range of content — is to be construed in its en- 
tirety, and no portion as, separately, connoting either national scope or the standard 
American biographical reference work. 

With a view to revisions, as time and necessity make them advisable, suggestions for 
improvement, changes in biographical data, notices of deaths, and change of address as 
they occur, are invited.

INDEX 
TO THE PAGINATION OF BIOGRAPHEES' SKETCHES 

This method of indexing the biographical data of each biographee appearing 
in the following compilation has been utilized because of the resultant facili- 
tation of reference use of the work, as detailed in the preceding preface. Inclu- 
sion in the compilation has solely and entirely resulted from the editors' application 
of selective standards intended to reflect distinction in meritorious attainment suffi- 
ciently distinguished to subject the biographee to more than localized reference 
interest. No other consideration of any nature whatsoever was determinative.

TABLE OF ABBREVIATIONS 

Observant users of this wor\, on referring to the table below in the course of utilizing biographies in the compilation, will doubtless hat 
noted with appreciation that the inner columns of pages either followed or preceded by a considerable portion of the book's buIJj. are unusuaJll 
convenient to consult. This is because exceptionally wide inner margins have been provided in order to reduce the inconvenient bending i 
the inner column on a page when overlaying a considerable portion of an opened boo\ the principal content of which is necessarili 

arranged in columns. 



In interpreting by means of this 
table the abbreviations appearing in 
biographee's sketches, it is necessary 
in some instances, because of simi- 
larities, to note carefully exact let- 
lter-sequence. For example, service 
in the army during the last war is 
designated by "A. U.S.", to indi- 
cate the legislative designation for 
that particular force, "The Army of 
the United States", while "N.A." 
records membership in the "National 
Army", which participated in the 
first World War under that official 
designation (the permanent ranks in 
the regular standing army being 
followed by "U.S. Army"). 

* Listings followed by this indicator 
are of biographees who failed to 
supply current data requested be- 
cause of editorial file inadequacies 
or errancies.

BIOGRAPHIES 

The consultant's attention is directed to the notation above the first entry in 
the index to the pagination of hiographees' sketches which ends opposite this 
page. The method for referring to a specific biographee's data which the index 
implements has been utilized, as mentioned in that notation and detailed in the 
preface to this wor\, because of certain resultant advantages to both the user 
and the compiler of a biographic dictionary. Its principal physical differentia* 
tion from the still prevalent practice of self'indexing such compilations is that 
a compact, separate index, instead of the bul\y compilation itself, facilitates 
reference to individual biographies. Accordingly, the index mentioned is to be 
turned to when referring to a specific biography in the following compilation.
